A spectacular free festival for the entire family
During a few days in July, the town of Karlshamn hosts Karlshamn Baltic Festival, Östersjöfestivalen, where people from near and far will come and rejoice in what can only be described as a true, limitless street fest. Watch as the town puts on a magical display of community, love and fun, reminding everybody who stops by that culture, is indeed, made for us all. And what’s best: it won’t cost you a dime.
With music in the centre of attention, this year’s Karlshamn Baltic Festival will take place on the 15-18 July. During four fun filled days visitors will flock to experience a wonderful pick-and-mix of national and international performances, food, shopping and other joyous activities. The festival will welcome everyone with open arms in a splendid feast for all senses.
In the festival’s Baltic Song Contest, performers from Sweden and its neighbouring countries compete against each other in a grand musical battle; over 10 different stages will provide audiences with some of the most remarkable and spectacular shows you’ve ever seen, and the international food stands will have your mouths watering with delicacies from all over the world. In addition to this, an entirely new skateboard ramp will be built, providing skating enthusiasts a proper meeting place for practice, socialisation and competition. This and so much more makes Karlshamn Baltic Festival well worth a visit for the entire family.
So come on over! Bring your friends and family and take a stroll down the streets that offers you entertainment and stimulation from the very first to the very last step. Experience for yourself what it really is like to come together with thousands of others over something was wonderful as music and culture. You won’t regret it for a second. We guarantee it.
